i could, but i won't. it'll be a hindrance in the long run. honestly, learn to do it yourself. you want an a/a* answer? well, to get to that standard, you really do need to put the effort in yourself, rather than asking others to do work for you. i don't mean any offense by this, i just think you should have a go on your own

Uh I don’t have a clue about what board you’re in and I think having xx at the end is kind of ....gay but this **** I’m gonna say is more than a A*

How a meander is formed
In the middle course the river has more energy and a high volume of water. The gradient here is gentle and lateral (sideways) erosion has widened the river channel. The river channel has also deepened. A larger river channel means there is less friction, so the water flows faster: As the river erodes laterally, to the right side then the left side, it forms large bends, and then horseshoe-like loops called meanders. The formation of meanders is due to both deposition and erosion and meanders gradually migrate downstream. The force of the water erodes and undercuts the river bank on the outside of the bend where water flow has most energy due to decreased friction. On the inside of the bend, where the river flow is slower, material is deposited, as there is more friction. Over time the horseshoe become tighter, until the ends become very close together. As the river breaks through, eg during a flood when the river has a higher discharge and more energy, and the ends join, the loop is cut-off from the main channel.(ox-box) lake.

Remember a A* pupils main mistake is to spit out everything they know about meanders, so remember only mention how a meander is made.

The river flows fastest on the outside bend and has more energy. This erodes the outside bank of the river channel through hydraulic action and abrasion creating a river cliff. Secondly, slow moving water on the inside bends deposits material creating a river beach. This changes the course of the river narrowing the neck of the meander. Finally, often during a flood the river will cut through the neck of the meander and will continue in the new bed.
